Enter the RockOSaurus, Mr Flowers & The Docktor…….

Loves: The Crunch of a Gibson Les Paul amped through a Marshall stack.

The Docktor is infected with total pop groove. Converted to Rock, he is now almost as likely to be found moshing at the rock show as he is to be dancing the light fandango on the dancefloor. His pop roots have definitely not deserted him yet and he adds the Pop sprinkle to the DoesItRock.net Team…
Music Tastes: Mainly middle of the road popular radio fodder, but gets scared of the traffic so can often be found venturing off to the electro fields with regular visits to the lands of pop rock.
Appreciates: Catchy pop melodies, cheesy tunes, keyboards & sythns plus funky electro funks.
Loves: The smell of bitumen strength coffee.
Hates: Standing too close to the PA speakers which leads to 3 days of hearing loss
Best New Band: The Treatment
Guilty Pleasures: Britney Spears
